Wimbledon Village residents have been speaking out against proposals published by Crossrail 2 that will have a significant impact on the town, including the demolition of Centre Court Shopping Centre.  

If the scheme goes ahead, 30 Crossrail 2 trains will pass through Wimbledon station every hour, which would be expanded to cater for an expected 3000 extra peak time commuters.

Why it pays to listen to your individual needsIt’s easy to understand the anger created by these plans, and why local MP Stephen Hammond has joined the chorus of objections.

But at other times listening is better than speaking. According to Bernard Ferrari, author of Power Listening: Mastering The Most Critical Business Skill Of All, the best estate and letting agents recognise that they cannot succeed in fulfilling the property aspirations of vendors, buyers, landlords or tenants without seeking out information from them and letting clients know that their input is invaluable.

In a nutshell, that is what makes the property professionals at Robert Holmes & Co different.

We treat everybody who contacts Robert Holmes as individuals – even both parties in a couple.

We listen to your needs and use our experience and in-depth knowledge of Wimbledon Village, Coombe and the surrounding areas to help you maximise the value of your property or, in the case of buyers and tenants, your budget.

Just as every property for sale and rent in Wimbledon Village is unique, so are you.

Diversity and choice

The diverse styles and types of property in SW19 help make this special part of London so attractive to families with growing children and professionals seeking respite from the stress of central London.

But not every property is suitable for everybody. For example, a 6-bed, modern family house in Arthur Road, Wimbledon Village, that we have listed is perfect for larger families.

The bright and very generous accommodation is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor, arranged around the reception hall, there are two reception rooms, a dining room to the front with an ancillary serving kitchen adjacent, a sitting room with open fireplace, an kitchen/breakfast/family room with a separate study area and picture windows overlooking the garden.

This large, traditional home is quite a contrast to another property we have on offer.

The super-modern Kinsella Gardens property on Wimbledon Common is part of an exclusive development on the Royal Wimbledon Golf Course. It not only has 5/6 bedrooms (4 en-suite), this property has a gym, cellar room and comes equipped with the latest technology.

We acknowledge not every property is right for every tenant or buyer. This is why we wouldn’t show a young family with a child in a buggy a one-bed apartment that can only be accessed up a flight of steps, or a young couple with a maximum budget of £1750 per month an 8-bedroom mansion with outdoor pool that we have on offer for £2769 per week.

Having said that, this property on Thornton Hill, Wimbledon, is stunning. Set over four floors, this beautifully refurbished home has extensive, versatile accommodation including a two-bedroom flat attached to it plus an extra-ordinarily large garden.

Here at Robert Holmes, we even acknowledge that living in Wimbledon Village is not suitable for a young single man seeking a home that offers a vibrant nightlife within five minutes’ walk of his office in the City of London.

Vive la difference. We also have international connections.

The shortage of properties coming onto the market means Robert Holmes & Co can take the care to match each home we have for sale or rent to buyers’ and tenants’ individual needs. This goes a long way to helping guarantee your satisfaction and ensuring the people who move to Wimbledon Village play an active role in helping the local community thrive.
